A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain name and you've quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Internet. For instance, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you can even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for students as well as the primary school website. If you work with subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the sites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

If you purchase a cloud website hosting plan from our company, you'll be able to create subdomains easily through your Hepsia website hosting CP. We've decided not to restrict their amount, so even if you host only 1 domain in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different site for each and every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to select the folder in the account that it'll open, set up customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, plus much more. All hosted domains and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you are going to be able to access lots of functions for every single one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
